There’s no denying that learning to cook has a whole stack of benefits.

When kids move out of home and start to fend for themselves, the skills they have up their sleeve will make or break their experience of the world.

Healthier for the waste and wallet

Eating out all of time translates to excess calories – not to mention a blow to the hip pocket.

And nothing beats a home-cooked meal.

Start early

But if we don’t start teaching kids and teens basic kitchen how-to’s, they won’t have the skills they need for life.

Everybody needs to eat, and the benefits of balanced, nutritious meals go beyond helping to maintain a healthy weight and boosting your mood and energy levels.

The social side of food

Cooking can also bring people together, and nothing’s more impressive than cooking for someone on your first date!

Cooking and eating is also a brilliant way to connect with family and friends, which helps alleviate feelings of social isolation.

That’s why we’re really proud of our FREE weekly Cooking Sessions for teens.

Anyone between the age of 12 and 18 can come along every Monday from 4.30pm to 6pm and enjoy putting together a healthy meal with our Youth and Adolescent Family Team.

Where? The SECC Community Hub – 1007 Botany Rd, Mascot (cnr Coward st)

Here’s a pic from our last cooking session:
